“ At Summit Sky Ranch people, place and vision have thoughtfully come together harmoniously in one of the most pristine mountain regions.”

– Tom Everist, Summit Sky Ranch Developer


“My family has cherished this land. We’ve been lucky enough to own it for over 20-years. Only now do we feel like we have the right combination of vision, partnerships, focus on conservation and community support to build homes worthy of this majestic landscape.”

Mr. Everist should know. Having led many publicly owned companies in his accomplished career across the construction and medical device manufacturing industries. He has served as president and chairman of L.G. Everist, Inc., in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, as well as director of custom cabinet manufacturers Showplace Wood Products, also in Sioux Falls.

He has also served as director of Everist Health, Inc., in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 2002. The Everist Family also operates Everist Materials, a supplier of aggregate, asphalt and concrete materials.

Mr. Everist has put together a seasoned team to bring his vision to life. “We’ve designed layouts and floorplans that fit into the lots, but also the landscape. Mountain modern architecture that is a unique combination of organic shapes and clean lines,” said Matt Mueller, Development Director. “We are so excited to share this unique property with a new generation of homeowners that are like-minded, active and outdoor mountain enthusiasts ready to add their own chapter to the area’s rich legacy. It’s like living a dream that’s coming true,” Mr. Everist concluded.



Originally homesteaded in the 1860’s, the property known as Maryland Creek Ranch was first used as ranch land for hay production and Scottish Highland Cattle. There were originally 8 families that staked homestead claims on the nearly 1100-acres of Maryland Creek Ranch.Since the land sat along the Blue River Stage Line, it made for easy transport of the beef up and down the Blue River Valley from the Williams Fork up to Silverthorne. Today, that ranching tradition continues at Maryland Creek Ranch at a glimmering new community that reinterprets the freedom of frontier living called Summit Sky Ranch.

Summit Sky Ranch brings the best of modern mountain living to over 400 acres of pristine and rugged natural beauty. This community has been thoughtfully designed to foster discovery and connectedness at every level. Modern architecture brings the area’s boundless beauty into everyday moments, intimate settings draw family, friends, and neighbors closer together, and warm service and modern amenities encourage experiencing each day to the fullest. It’s a contemporary community built for exploration and made for enjoyment – a place that invites families to put down roots and establish new and lasting traditions of their own.

To live at Summit Sky Ranch is to be connected: to nature, to community, and to the spirit of this special land, boldly delivering on the promise of a life without limits.
